Marie Curie Scotland & Bruichladdich Charity Whisky Fudge

From Bruichladdich’s website “There can be few more worthwhile causes than the wonderful nurses at Marie Curie. In their own words… “We’re here for people living with any terminal illness, and their families. We offer expert care, guidance and support to help them get the most from the time they have left.”

Team Bruichladdich will be riding the mighty Etape Caledonia on Sunday 21st May to support Marie Curie – and they are raising money by offering bottles from their personal collections for auction.  All the funds raised from the bids will be donated to Marie Curie.

ocdwhisky suggested that I could put my whisky fudge skills to good use and make some fudge to help this charity help others. And so after contacting the wonderful folks at Bruichladdich I am making fudge with Port Charlotte Scottish Barley. The boxes will be the 200g in weight and all profits will be going to @mariecurieSCO

Hopefully orders will be posted in the next couple of weeks.

As at publishing this updated blog I have now presold 22 of 20 boxes. So a huge amount of thanks to those who got in touch.

I normally charge £5 per box, but I hope you will dig a little deeper…

INGREDIENTS: Golden Caster Sugar, Sweetened Condensed Milk (Whole Milk and Sugar), Butter (from Milk and Salt) Whisky

For Allergens see ingredients in bold


Fudge will be sold in ballotin boxes and packed and sent via Royal Mail.

The fudge should be kept at an ambient temperature.



Things To Smile About…

I have been a very lucky lady of late, not only have I met some new friends I have also become reacquainted with some old ones too. In addition to this, I have either won or have been gifted some wonderful whiskies.

So a huge thanks to Bruichladdich for liking my pleading during “jesuisici” when I posted a pic of my desktop picture of a walk I had taken the previous year in the Lake District. This was coming off the Scarth Gap, the back of Haystacks near Buttermere (see photo below.) This was a day of thinking and taking in the sheer beauty of the fells. My gift was a lovely bottle of Bruichladdich Islay Barley.



I was also lucky to receive a wonderful bottle of Edited from Paul John whisky, this was from another competition where the lovely Dram_Gazette chose me and a fellow friend to receive this dramspankingly good whisky!


And finally, after a worrying day and a lovely Rebel Yell tweet tasting, I then found out I had won the RT & follow competition from Claxton’s. This is a rather delicious bottle of Ledaig 8 years old, so a huge thank you to Adrian and the team.

Talk about how to make a lady smile…
